economist said, ian sheped heardson said a big bucket of cold water. 18,000 jobs created overall. the estimates ranged from 80,000 to 125,000. market and economists expected more jobs creation than that. when you dig within the numbers you can see government jobs were shed. wow. thousands. 57,000 private sector jobs created but 39,000 government jobs lost. unemployment rate went up. so this tells you, kyra, bottom line, that private companies are not confident to hire in big numbers at all and the government, local and state government, because of budget cuts, continue to slash jobs. this is what the trajectory looks like. we have come from massive job losses there over about a year ago 192,000 four months of bad jobs and then you saw job created and it petered out. another thing when we dig into the numbers. you look at the revisions and what prior months were changed either higher or lower and we found another 44,000 jobs we thought had been created weren't. so it was other months revised down about 44,000. manufacturing, construction, temporary services and jobs in these areas

's right. you know, the big point of contention yesterday was with house majority leader eric cantor pushing for this short-term deal or a series of short-term deals. the president, according to democratic sources familiar with the talks, made it clear that that is something he does not support and something he would veto. the president has, for the last few days, and certainly weeks as well, been pushing for the biggest deal possible where it it seemed to get some support. of late, it has not. the president believing if you start talking about the short-term deals, you run into the political season where you negotiate the things all over again. if you can't get this done now, how will you get this done in the thick of the political season? tense discussions yesterday. the president agitated and believing that republicans are using the debt talks to make political points. the president making the point, according to those inside the meeting, that this kind of atmosphere just confirms some of the worst fears that americans have about the way washington works. >> well, yeah. the way wa

other big stories we've got going on today, one of them being casey anthony will walk out of jail a free woman in six days. now, you hear that, and think back to 48 hours ago. it was at this time tuesday that casey anthony was facing the possibility of life in prison, maybe even facing the death penalty. what a difference 48 hours makes, because today she is counting the days until she walks out of the jail a free woman. she is counting down to six. you know by now, casey anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter caylee, but convicted on four counts of lying to investigators. just before sentencing, the deceives tried and failed to reduce down to one. here are the four counts. lying about working at university studios, liking about caylee being with a nanny, the fick tick zanny you heard solve about. and lying about speaking to caylee on the phone. this morning, the judge melvin perry gave her the maximum to each of those counts. >> i will sentence you to one year in the orange county jail, xwokting a $1,000 fine on each count all four counts to run consecutive to each o

their arguments outside rather than keeping them inside the room. the president wanted the big deal, john boehner it seemed wanted the big deal, and it's very clear that that is not likely to happen. so at this point the president had his press conference yesterday. he said, you know, i'm the grownup in the room here. we each need to give a little on something. he said, by the way, if we don't agree, guess who will sufficiensufficiener? the american people. >> you mentioned spooking the american people. i saw a poll today and i'm sure the white house saw it as well. in it it showed americans are more worried about raising the debt limit than they are about the government defaulting. could the statement by the president be, i don't know, a calculated effort to warn the country, talking about millions who don't get the checks about the severity of this government default? >> absolutely. i think the president is now starting to say, okay, and we're getting a little into the blame game now. okay, if the government defaults, you're not going to get your social security checks and your veterans benefit

and then this dip now? >> e.d., you talk to some analysts and they say, you know what, we had some really big shocks to the economy, to an economy that's already in trouble. first we had that ripple effect from the earthquake and tsunami in japan. that really hit manufacturers and automakers really hard and stopped production in its tracks. that's one effect and one reason we're seeing such low numbers. another reason, these higher oil prices we've been dealing with. they jacked up gas prices, so consumers pulled back on spending on other discretionary items. now, that doesn't help to give companies any extra confidence to hire when they see that nobody is, let's say, walking into their store to buy things. also these high oil prices cut into company's profit margins because for them it costs more to produce these products and distribute these products. these companies, you know, just overall, they aren't hiring. in the economy itself there is just a lot of uncertainty. if the economy would be on solid footing, then they'll hire but we're just not there. and of course amplifying this whole situation

chart has given a lot over the years. we call it the big shot. in the last few years, change has happened in terms of the long-term stability, brief moments of disturbance, changes in 60 years of stability. we reinvented work practices and other practices. what has happened now is in the last 10 years, we are moving to a different kind of infrastructure proven by the digital loss of competition. now we find having a world in which we have constant disruption nearly every year. the challenge is how do you start to leverage that rather than fear that in terms of driving innovation in? it will not slow down for the next 30 or 40 years. let me say this personally. i can recapitulate the last 10 years of my life. it took me from this class to cloud computing come into graphic processing, that is scientific computing a fraction of the cost, now into a very limited form of competing. i have had to relearn almost everything i knew as a computer scientist. dealing with the plains regarding amazon and microsoft. i had to think about how to move these processing units. there are single proc
